My research is centered around the understanding of cognitive processes, mainly language, and the way they are instantiated in the brain, for both typical and atypical populations, using both behavioral and neuroimaging data.
Currently, I pursue my PhD in Cognitive Science at Johns Hopkins University. My work focuses on the language abilities of people with aphasia and the goal is to get an insight as to how cognitive abilities, like spelling and word processing, can be affected in such cases, what this can tell us about the neural substrates that support cognition, and how we can use this information to optimize diagnosis and treatment.
My journey started with a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Cyprus and an MA in Linguistics from Utrecht University. Following, I worked as a research assistant at the Neuroscience of Language Lab at the New York University of Abu Dhabi, focusing on the understanding of morphological processing of Greek and English using Magneto-encephalography (MEG).
